Joie de Vivre jewelry

Indigo is a rich deep blue that, as a dye, originally came from tropical plants in the Indian subcontinent. Lapis lazuli and azurite gemstones also naturally show this intense hue; in fact, both lapis and azurite were ground into pigment for use in paints. Azurite is a softer, uncommon mineral forming in copper rich ores that is often found with malachite or chrysocholla. Many azurite beads are assembled and stabilized with resin, such as these, for economy and strength. Turquoise also forms in copper rich ores and is generally stabilized for strength. These 22" and 24" necklaces can be worn together or separately for a terrific addition of indigo to a wardrobe. The turquoise and lapis rondelle necklace can also be worn as a multi-wrap bracelet. Sterling silver toggle clasps.

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be frayed or severed through hard jerks or prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or fraying cord.

The materials and cord in this necklace can withstand tugs and pulls, but care should be taken to avoid hard impacts which can damage the softer turquoise. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
